We used to have "star charts" that we could monitor our progress on. We would get little star stickers to put up on our charts when we accomplished skills-including strength and flexibility. I always loved putting stars up on my chart.
I have used one for my girls for the past year and a bit and they love it! They are more excited about getting to put a sticker on the chart than getting the actual skill i think!
I have just started one for my boys so they can see all the skills they need to be able to do in order to compete.... I am hoping it will motivate them to really work hard for these skills
So... I think they are a good idea and do work well
I'm glad this topic was posted, I've been wanting to do the same with our 'pre-team' L2-L4 girls.
Would any of you be able to provide example 'accomplishments' specifically for UB?
I've tried a few things on paper, but seem to get stuck on what might work best. I initially based it strictly on skills for ones given level...but then scratch my head trying to define specific accomplishments for each skill. Different color 'star' for attempted-spotted-'mastered'...that kind of thing?
I of course don't want to make it too complicated ...but I'm hoping a fun idea like this would help motivate them to further develop a skill...as well as taking on new ones.
